TSS KK Talk: Thurs, 5th July 2018 – A Journal of Sabah’s traditional baskets by Jennifer Linggi

Date: Thur 5th July 2018

Time: 8.00 pm

Venue: The Sabah Society Secretariat, Damai Plaza, Luyang

Our speaker, Jennifer P.Linggi graduated from Canterbury and Oxford UK as an architect in 1992. After working as a designer in London, Brunei and Malaysia, she returned home to Sabah in 2004 to pursue her first love – art. As an artist, Jennifer has beautifully illustrated and captured the industry of traditional basket-making in her first book, The Kampung Legacy – A Journal of Sabah’s Traditional Baskets, published in 2017.

The purpose of the book was to document the art of basket-making done by the elderly craftsmen and women in the kampungs, a work that saw her staying with them to better understand their intricate handicrafts.

Jennifer is currently the Curator of the Sabah Art Gallery. Jennifer’s talk will be based on her book.
